From the moment we pulled up to the entrance of the hotel, we began to experience the attention to detail that became more evident as we stayed there. This hotel may have been there for many years, but it has been restored to it's orriginal beauty (just as I remembered it from the 70's). We ate at 3 restaurants as well as at a cocktail reception and wedding. The food was excellent. Surprising for "banquet" food. If you can, stay in "The Tower". The view of the city is beautiful. I would recomend this hotel for a special occasion as it is a bit pricey. Given a gift again, I'd be packed in a heartbeat!!!
